lyrics

I CAN'T BEAR TO TEAR MYSELF AWAY FROM YOU
(Words and Music - Robert Childs)

We could stay this way forever
Our arms and legs entwined
Skin to skin upon a naked bed
oblivious to passing time
We could stay like this together
Locked in each other's clasp
Sealed inside our loving, yearning
Bodies sticking fast


Chorus
I can't bear to tear myself away from you
The pain a simple kiss creates
The agony as our flesh separates
Stick us both together
With a rubber band
And a dab of glue
I can't bear to tear myself away from you

I could find the trail on your skin
That leads me to your past
Hand in hand revealing
Each one's ever changing path
You could find the roads we travelled
And the rivers we've explored
We take that stream of memories
In wave on wave of more

Chorus

I was thinking of the time we met
It's an intimate photograph
The glow of your affection
The warmth of your loving laugh
I was thinking of the time we've spent
The pleasure and delight
The captivated ache of lovers
Moaning in the naked night

I was looking through the window
Listening to you sigh
I thought that you were sleeping
With your hand upon my thigh
I thought that you were sleeping
When I heard your loving call
Lip to lip and eye to eye
And bound to each others soul

Chorus
